Maldito Tango Duo (bandoneon / guitar) plays tango music for concerts and milongas in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Scott O'Day is a guitarist and violinist dedicated to the music of tango. He has performed in the café-bars of Buenos Aires with members of 34 Puñaladas and Palermo Trio. Scott is in demand as a prominent tango guitarist in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he can be heard weekly with his own musical projects. He has toured the US and Canada with tango dance bands. He also regularly performs original guitar arrangements of classic tangos and South American songs as a soloist. A world traveller and scholar, Scott has extensively researched music in Argentina, Spain, and Nepal. Scott is also a music teacher in Bay Area middle and high schools, as well as his own studio of guitar and violin students.

Charles Gorczynski is a bandoneonist / composer and leads the Redwood Tango Ensemble, a tango sextet in San Francisco. From an early background in improvisation and jazz harmony he gradually found his way towards tango music and became increasingly obsessed with both the bandoneón and transcribing the early orchestras. After subsequent years of study and a move to the Bay Area he became a dedicated student of the music and style. Charles has led Redwood Tango and his instrumental group Colorlist through several tours in the US, Canada, and Italy. As a composer his original work has been released with Ropeadope Records, 482 Music, Serein Records, and a host of local labels and film houses. Charles is also a dedicated teacher and maintains a studio of music students in the Bay Area.
